The year of the Lord 2016 has ended. During this time, we experienced the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, the World Youth Das, the recognition of Jesus Christ as Lord and King, and many other events. The Shrine of Divine Mercy was visited by a record number of pilgrims – more than 5 million, from 180 countries. It was a special year, one of grace and mercy, when we had a unique opportunity to explore the mystery of God’s Mercy, to experience the merciful Love of God in our everyday lives, and to shape our lives in a spirit of trust in God and mercy towards others. With this extremely rich experience of the Jubilee Year of Mercy, we are entering the new 2017. May this time, too, be rich in the grace of God and human mercy. We wish this to all the Collaborators, Donors and Benefactors of the Congregation and the people to whom we are sent with the message of Mercy, the Church and our homeland.
